The Norman lust for battle and ravenous desire for land and treasure can, like their famous sword be undoubtedly traced to their Viking forefathers who wrenched their homeland in northwestern France from the hands of Charles the Simple in the Treaty of Saint-Clair-sur-Epte in 911 AD. Never satisfied with thier lot, it wasn't long before they once again took up their broad, double-edged swords and set sail across the English Channel to conquer Britian most famously, at the battle of Hastings in 1066 AD. Now Cold Steel is pleased to offer you their battle ready version of this famous sword.
